The ultimate guide to winning this crabby summer


By: Ashton Keefe


If you're not familiar with this tradition and live on the east coast, order or grab some Maryland Blue Crabs and do the following ....

Add 1 1/2 cups water, a beer, some vinegar and more Old Bay than you think necessary (probably half of a standard sized container) into a large pot.
Whisk to combine and bring to a simmer.
Layer in crabs (as many as you want) and sprinkle with remainder of seasoning.
Cook/steam crabs for 10 minutes and toss with more Old Bay.
Then pick them and drink ... a lot.

Tag your crab feast #lemonandsalt / #culinaryrevelry, cheers
